LM Montgomery and Laura Ingalls Wilder!  I have loved both of their books from the time I was eight.  I enjoy reading their books to my own children now.  One of my daughters has "Laura" for a middle name because I loved her books so much.

When I was really little I loved the Carl books, they had no words, so I think my dad had a lot fun reading them to me all I did was bark.
I also liked Clifford, and Madeline.
But my favorite one has the to the Pony Pal series I actually still read them today, I only need seven more till I have them all. It's also a lot of fun to torture my Dad with them since I made him read them to me for almost three years.

I second this!
I learned reading with Pippi, and I guess I only learned reading because I so wanted to read that book all by myself! You can still tell by the state of that book... I loved all her books so much, I probably read each more than 20 times... 

Other than that I really loved a german author, Erich Kästner, but I am afraid you won't have heard of him.

How could I forget about Laura! *bangs head* She was my one and only (ok, not only, but still one of my favourites) in my childhood! I believe I read all of her books. I loved them so much! When I was playing I often pretended I was her  These books are really fascinating. Ahh, the memory...

That would be the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Author is obvious.

Hmmm this is a hard one there were so many...

I love the "help me be good books" can't remember the author but they were very helpful when dealing with tough situations when i was 8-9 lol
Dr. Seuss takes the cake for this...Green eggs and ham!!
Would you like them in a box would you like them with a fox, would you like them here or there would you like them anywhere? Cat in the hat, 1 fish, 2 fish, red fish, blue fish, and the Lorax!

Roald Dahl most definitely.  The Witches was by far my favourite book.

Also Enid Blytons Famouse Five

Yes I loved those too!! And the TV Series too.

And I also really liked the "Hanni und Nanni" books. I have many of the books and read them over and over when I was younger. These books made me feel happy because the girls were so brave and happy.

Oh yeah, I also liked "Die drei ? " (there should be 3 ? there but it turns it into a smiley ) and I devoured the "Was ist Was???" series which are books on many different topics like Mummies, Jewellery, Cars, anything really, with pictures and text and I always always went to the Library and got them out. I still have the one about Egypt and the Mummies. I was fascinated with Egypt and still am!

There were so many books I read as a kid and I still read about a book a week. I have way too many books.

I'm not sure I'm familiar with that one.
